Review: The Casual Vacancy by J.K Rowling

By far her most well-known work, J.K Rowling is basically a household name at this point. And so everyone was fairly… Continue reading Review: The Casual Vacancy by J.K Rowling

Review: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot

Happy July friends! I hope that everyone's summers have been going well! I've been super busy working two jobs and moving - so as a result my writing and reading has been at a low point for the past two months.

Review: Illuminae by Jay Kristoff & Amy Kaufman

So as it turns out, to continue my excitement after exiting my reading block, I fell into a Jay Kristoff marathon. Starting with Nevernight, I peeked over to my TBR shelf and saw - you guessed it - Illuminae! I've always been interested in how authors collaborate on books. Like, does one author take certain… Continue reading Review: Illuminae by Jay Kristoff & Amy Kaufman

Review: A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas

Excuse me while I crawl out from under the rock that I have been hiding under for the past few months. Classic me, I didn't plan my time well enough and ended up getting swamped by my finals and summer courses. It's been a wild time, but I'd say that it's been time well spent.… Continue reading Review: A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas

Review: Blue is the Warmest Colour by Julie Maroh

So the second 'book' that I've read this month was the graphic novel Blue is the Warmest Colour. I'm sure that people have heard of the movie adaptation that came out 2013, that made a lot of news mainly for featuring a lesbian couple, something that hadn't been very popular on the big screen, or… Continue reading Review: Blue is the Warmest Colour by Julie Maroh
